I need a patch!

Seriously peoples. A patch for the internet. So that next time it dies, I won't be left completely, and utterly cut off.

My wireless internet adapter died. It worked when I went to bed on Monday, but didn't when I got home from work on Tuesday. On closer inspection it would seem that the entire card (in the casing) had been disconnected from the pins. In short, it had been dropped. And I was the sucker who had to fork out $60 to replace it, so I could update my beloved blog.

35 emails. 7 scrabble games to play. 150 blogs. 34+ comments. One tag (that I know of).

In three days! Kitty, do you know you've done 15 posts in that amount of time! If they make the internet patch, I'll send you a spare in case your internet dies too!


Where did sitemeter go? Its been three days and I jumped on to check my stats, and it's gone away. I was almost at 15000 visits!

Is anyone else having this problem?


I wore make up to work today. I rarely wear make up. And I was talking to one of the guys and he literally did a double take, without the look away bit. Funniest thing I've seen in ages!


I shopped tonight. I have new jammies. Funky ones of course. Just a singlet and boxer combo, but oh-so cute!

And a new bra set. And a hot new top. In a size down from what I normally buy there.


There's a storm moving in so I should go. Catch y'all laterz.

So you went to work looking all hot and the guys were staring, eh? Well, that's what we do. Can't blame us for lusting.

Scorpy said...

LOL..I know how you feel. A little while back my PC caught fire and I had to replace the whole bloody thing !!!! I was lost without my banking, online TV guide, email, work stuff, blogging, games etc :)

OneHungMan said...

Ummm, OneHung thinks your audience should have a picture of you in those new jammies.

Stacy The Peanut Queen said...

Those jammies sound wonderful...I love running around the house in something like that!

Princess of the Universe said...

I was wondering what happened - I thought you might have just given up on me as a lost cause in our Scrabble game.

Mr R Rabbit said...

Buy a decent mobile phone with internet, its almost as good as a patch.

Professor said...

Sitemeter - still working for me.:
Total 14,136
Average Per Day 39
Average Visit Length 1:13
Last Hour 4
Today 23
This Week 274
I'm sure you bow me out of the water, but then I dont talk about sex (on my blog any way)

make up - I just don't get why chicks go for the war paint. I'm all for truth in advertising. You wear it to look more attractive - but the more attractive girls also wear it so they becoem more attractive and you in effect never catch up - If you all agreed not to wear it you would all maintain your relative attractiveness without the paint - you should start a union.

jammies - I don't wear em

rain - yay

I fucking hate it when the net acts up. I am so addicted to it that there is no color in life unless I can get my net fix.

Cazzie!!! said...

Make up, new smaller sized jammies...just wonderful!!! You go girl!!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Patch for the Internet? The only thing I know to do in your circumstances is to purchase a second computer. Expensive, but think of the peace of mind you’ll have. How many new jammies equals a computer?

Missing counter? My counter is still present but my counter to receive hugs is either Non compos mentis or AWOL. Can those be attributed to a computer?

Perhaps you should wear make-up to work more often?

Shopping purchases in a smaller size? Is that good?

I have an announcement to make and you’re the first to hear it (I’ll blog about it tomorrow): Alex murdered his (first, I think) mouse today. I suppose I am happy for my kitty’s hunting prowess, but sad about the mousey.

my sitemeter is working... changed a bit though... so maybe it is just updating or something. Not many changes... just little ones.

I want new jammies... that sounds heavenly!

The T-Dude said...

You broke the Intertubes! Wow, you're strong!

Yeah, PJ's are over-rated. Personally. I don't use'em.

I don't need to worry about IT related hardware as The Wave is an IT Manager so he is all over it.

It is good, as I haven't got a clue.

Kitty said...

Hi Phish I thought you were unusually quiet baby.

Yes I've been post whoring this week without shame. I know.

I woke this morning to eyeball my sitemeter that fiiiiiinally hit 15,005 visits today!

I'm going to get drunk and celebrate with internet porn.

~Miss Smack said...

whoooooo hoooooo 15 thousand is ALOT of visits! Congrats girl. Your blog is by far my favourite on the block. I wouldn't miss it for the world! :)

Steve - It was more surprise than lust.

Scorpy - uh, you win.

OHM - Hmm. What about the new underwear I bought.

Stacy - I'd rather be running around in nothing, really.

Princess - Hardly. You're winning at last count.

Mr Rabbit - but more expensive!

Betty - me too!

Prof - Yeah, they were 8 sizes smaller.

Stephen - I wear make up very rarely.

Y - Imagine it for 3 days then!

Cazzie - I was excited too.

nick - Congrats to Alex, and commiserations to the mouse.

Kelly - it came back. Eventually.

T - Nekkid sleeping not an option. I live in a share house.

Kitty - Internet porn is teh best. Congrats on the landmark hits!

Smack - are you talking to me or kitty there? lol. If it's her, I can't complain. I love her blog too.

Scorpy said...

Yipeee....I win ;)

Steph said...

I find getting drunk helps a lot. But then it's my answer for everything.

BottleBlonde said...

Poor, poor girl. I hate it when something goes wrong with my internet connection. What the fuck did I do before Al Gore invented the internet? WORK?!

By the way, what did you do without internet porn for all that time???

phishez_rule said...

Scorpy - there's no prize. Sorry.

Steph - You know, that suits all of the abov situations.

BB - i have my own stash of DVD porn to fall back on.
